The grey eyes stare through the canvas, judging passers with a scowl. While George Washington was undoubtedly a great man, admired widely in his own time and ever after for intelligence, bravery, and kindness, it would be hard to tell from his portraits. This is because Washington was a lifelong victim of oral health issues that left him with only one of his original teeth intact when he took office and caused discomfort and embarrassment that kept him from speaking in public.

Being a part of advanced placement classes in middle school, I expected loads of difficult work to come my way once I entered Fenway High School. These advanced classes prepared me well to succeed in high school. Although I took these higher classes, I was never good at math.

The short essays are uninteresting and most of the time vague. Each section in the test has a time limit, therefore a student has limited time to comprehend what they read and answer the questions that follow. As a student one can only imagine spending all four years in high school trying to get a good GPA and then having to take the SAT as a junior or senior.
